“‎They are angry with me, because I know what I am." Said the little eagle. "How do you know that they are angry with you?" "Because, they despise me for wanting to soar, they only want me to peck at the dirt, looking for ants, with them. But I can't do that. I don't have chicken feet, I have eagle wings." "And what is so wrong with having eagle wings and no chicken feet?" Asked the old owl. "I'm not sure, that's what I'm trying to find out." "They hate you because you know that you are an eagle and they want you to think you are a chicken so that you will peck at the ground looking for ants and worms, so that you will never know that you are an eagle and always think yourself a chicken. Let them hate you, they will always be chickens, and you will always be an eagle. You must fly. You must soar." Said the old owl.”

“...and there is a Catskill eagle in some souls that can alike dive down into the blackest gorges, and soar out of them again and become invisible in the sunny spaces.

Herman Melville

Adunni Badmus

“Take It easy, take it easy.
Don't let the sound of your own wheels
drive you crazy.
Lighten up while you still can,
don't even try to understand.
Just find a place to make your stand
and take it easy. ”

I'd soar on high where only eagles dare
I'd let them rip, I'd let them tear,
until all that remained was me bare.”

Around its sigh, no more alone the sky
Other birds remain away, clouds pass by
Between shrouds of life and haze sun rays die”

Sara Teasdale
“We are two eagles
Flying together
Under the heavens,
Over the mountains,
Stretched on the wind.
Sunlight heartens us,
Blind snow baffles us,
Clouds wheel after us
Ravelled and thinned.

We are like eagles
But when Death harries us,
Human and humbled
When one of us goes,
Let the other follow,
Let the flight be ended,
Let the fire blacken,
Let the book close.”
Sara Teasdale, The Collected Poems

Whether fan or whether foe,
Loyalty to city was the only way to go,
They now have a Lombardi Trophy to show,
Philadelphia Eagles stole the show”
Charmaine J Forde
